AIM Adipose tissue derived retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP-4), known as one of the most important adipokins, has a link with insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome in obesity. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible correlation between fasting serum RBP4 and resting metabolic rate (RMR) as a predictor of weight gain, body composition and insulin resistance in obese and non-obese subjects. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this case-control study, 73 obese and 90 non-obese… CONTINUE READING
